The Student Book with CD-ROM & Skits DVD is an audiovisual, colorful presentation of vocabulary, simple grammar concepts and picture sentences to help children learn at their own pace. For each Vocabulary Unit there is a song with lyrics, pictures in the same order as the song, frequently used Q&A, and a Skit. Each chapter ends with a cultural point. The Interactive CD-ROM is the voice of the book divided into five areas: Pronunciation, Songs, Vocabulary, Q&A, and Conjugations. The Skits DVD presents humorous skits acted by native speakers with subtitles.

Thank you so much for creating this program. You have condensed a wealth of information into one book and CD. The material is well organized and very parent-children friendly. The illustrations are clear as well as very entertaining. The songs are fun and set to tunes with which most American children are familiar. You have also done an incredible job of rhyming between English and Spanish at the same time as you are organizing each lesson into easy to remember categories and relationships. My kids (4 and 6 years old) beg me to let them listen to the Spanish songs! I am delighted to hear them singing the songs to themselves while they are playing.

I have been using your program for almost 2 years now and students really enjoy the fact that they can learn on their own with the book, CD and CD-ROM. They love the pictures and the songs and being able to use the CD-ROM as an interactive way of learning. I love it! It is great to use in my classes and also great for parents to use at home with their children. Thank you for your hard work!

I purchased a set of Risas y Sonrisas for my 1st and 2nd graders. The children love the book, the bright colors, and the songs. They know almost all of the songs by heart. Many times after class, one of the children will write on the blackboard, "We Love Spanish Class!" I attribute this to the wonderful material Leticia Smith has developed and the enthusiasm it engenders.
